Twitter suspends journalists from NYT, Washington Post and others covering Elon Musk: Report

The Washington Posts Drew Harwell, alongside other banned reporters, was able to participate in a Twitter Spaces audio session while under suspension, exposing a loophole in Twitter’s enforcement. Twitter Inc. suspended the accounts of upstart rival service Mastodon and several prominent journalists covering the social network’s billionaire owner Elon Musk. Late Thursday, reporters from publications including the Washington Post, the New York Times, Mashable and CNN were listed as blocked and their tweets were no longer visible, with the companys standard notice saying it suspends accounts that violate the Twitter rules. Also affected was sports and political commentator Keith Olbermann. Musk said Olbermann will be subject to a 7-day suspension for doxxing. In a separate tweet, he alleged the suspended journalists had posted his exact real-time location, describing the information as basically assassination coordinates.
